WASHINGTON – Daniel Cormier thinks Stipe Miocic was trying to return the favor by talking about a potential Tyson Fury fight. When Cormier (22-2 MMA, 15-2 UFC) defeated Miocic (19-3 MMA, 13-3 UFC) at UFC 226 to capture the UFC heavyweight title, he was immediately confronted by former titleholder Brock Lesnar, who was being set up to be his first title challenger. Miocic, who’s the only fighter in UFC history to successfully defend the heavyweight belt three straight times, felt slighted, and demanded an immediate rematch. When the fight with Lesnar fell through, Cormier ended up facing popular Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 230 at New York’s Madison Square Garden instead.
